  • Hacker Jeopardy will be bigger and better than ever for DEFCON 20!

    Just a quick note for those who are wondering -- YES, we'll be back for the 18th running of the Hacker Jeopardy show. Your favorite cast -- Winn, G. Mark, and Vanna Vinyl will be back for another session of knowledge-testing, beer consumption, and hilarity (along with great swag for the audience). We've got permission from DT to make this year's contest really something to remember, so start memorizing your IPv6 packet header fields, TCP/IP port numbers, and various other trivia to have your chance at winning a DEFCON leather jacket, black badge (free DEFCON for life), and bragging rights. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the CON on how to enroll your team.
